Went today to have lunch, ordered pork with potatoes and onion, where ok but nothing spectacular, ordered beer and chacha. There is a very friendly and professional young waitress, on the other side there is a very rude senior lady, can be a manager or owner, which seem to be angry about receiving a visit in the restaurant. The food is ok, prices are not crazy and the venue is nice, the attitude of this lady is the only negative I find.

Average food, rude manager / owner

The Khinkali were ok, a bit too thick and lacking in flavor. The waitress was good, friendly and responsive. The woman that severed the food (owner? manager?) Was very inhospitable to say the very least. The place was almost empty and she looked at me with attitude and asked if I had a reservation...

The Khinkali were ok, a bit too thick and lacking in flavor. The waitress was good, friendly and responsive. The woman that severed the food (owner? manager?) Was very inhospitable to say the very least. The place was almost empty and she looked at me with attitude and asked if I had a reservation - it was 3:30 in the afternoon so I highly doubt a rush was coming and by the time I left it was totally empty, there were just two tables eating when arrived. One poor soul was eating his Khinkali in a way she felt was wrong, she stopped taking an order and yelled at him across the restaurant and said very loudly "NO, your eating it wrong". The entire restaurant looked at the poor guy, she was relentless and really quite rude to everyone. I think this resturant has had its day in the sun and she is living in a time when reservations were required and an attitude was tolerated for the food. I do not recommend this restuarant based on what I had to eat and the attitude of this angry woman. I ate indoors, the setting was very nice.

Disappointing and expensive

I was really looking forward to this place, but it fell short in a few major ways, most of which revolved around service. We arrived around 3:30pm, a slow off-time, but there were three other tables of 2-3 people finishing late lunches. I was disappointed to see that all of the dumplings were pork mixed...

I was really looking forward to this place, but it fell short in a few major ways, most of which revolved around service. We arrived around 3:30pm, a slow off-time, but there were three other tables of 2-3 people finishing late lunches. I was disappointed to see that all of the dumplings were pork mixed with beef (I keep kosher, and while I knew this place wasn't kosher, it was a little disappointing that there wasn't at least one kosher-friendly dumpling). We settled for the set menus, though at first the waitress said 'no, they're only until 4pm' and then dryly agreed that 'oh, it's not quite 4; yes, okay.' We each ordered one of the two types of set menu (each which comes with three options for mains) as well as the eggplant with walnuts, a Georgian delicacy. Salads and rolls (one small roll each) came first, then soups--my mushroom soup was watery and too heavy on the pepper, my wife's mutton soup was better. Her main was a single veal skewer, served with just onions--no bread, no potato or rice, etc. A bit sad. I got the beef blintzes, which were really good, and a huge portion (compared to her standalone meat). The eggplant never came. The waitress disappeared after delivering our food and so we couldn't ask--and everything took so long to appear that we opted not to push it. There were street cats in and out of the dining room, including one with a severe eye infection. The waitress fed them bread, which felt a little wrong (at least give them meat scraps, cats can't handle bread). The bathroom was grim and smelled of urine all over. The meal itself was really expensive, and do watch out--tip is included automatically, which isn't the norm in Israel. There are other Georgian places in Jerusalem. Go to them instead.
